    Does anybody know if Microsoft still owns some shares of Apple, or were I can find some information in regards to this. I am having a debate with a work friend, and any current information would help fuel my fire :)

    I'm pretty sure they sold it when the settlement expired. Which was just before Apple stopped shipping IE with OS X.

    Thank you, that is what I thought as well, but was not sure. I will keep searching for definite links to this fact.

    The shares were non-voting, there were $150 million worth, and they have long since been bought back by Apple.
